The class is integrated with The Pershing Square Value Investing and Philanthropy Challenge.  Winning teams will present their ideas to a panel of top value investors, including Bill Ackman of Pershing Square Capital Management.  Attendance at the finals event on April 8th is mandatory. 
This class builds on Applied Security Analysis I.  Participants will take on a team leadership/portfolio manager role in the preparation of the investment idea.  The course deliverable is a 10 minute pitch of an investment idea done by your team.  In ASA II, you are expected to take more of a team leadership role in researching and preparing the pitch.
